In August 2012 the state began advertising and promoting safer pedestrian and driver behaviors. October was the beginning of phase two, showing strategic enforcement of pedestrian laws, such as assuring that drivers yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.
This is funded in part by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with the intention to decrease motor vehicle-pedestrian crashes in the area through greater awareness and enforcement of pedestrian safety laws. Each year in North Carolina, more than 400 people are hit while walking and of those, approximately 350 people are injured or killed.
